GLAAD, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) media advocacy organization, has joined forces with The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation for a public service announcement entitled “HIV & AIDS: Why Aren't We Talking?”
The PSA, which is airing on the national LGBT cable channel Logo, was created to “inspire, inform, and reignite the passion needed to beat the HIV and AIDS epidemic once and for all.”
The PSA harnesses the power of Elizabeth Taylor's speech at the 1992 Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert and includes participation from Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Lane, Tituss Burgess and Daniel Franzese.
“HIV infection rates are up 133 percent in last decade among young gay men,” Joel Goldman, managing director of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, noted. “It’s troubling that 1 in 3 gay men have never had an HIV test. We must find new ways of raising awareness in order to reach this community and inform them of the tools available to prevent new infections. We are so fortunate to have the support from Logo as well as our incredible partners at GLAAD on this PSA campaign.”
